is there isn't counter stories about successful signups from obama care, so this administration has a real problem on their hands. of course, now you have these democratic senators, particularly in these red states saying they want to extend the sign-update. this has been a real disaster. and you wonder if the administration is setting themselves up again with this november 30th date when they say everything is going to be fine with this website, hard to believe that that actually is going to be true given the fact that so many things they have said about this plan haven't really come to pass. >> do you believe there was a fundamental lack of understanding, yes, people would go on and see if you're comparing apples to apples, old plan versus if they were required to sign up for more extensive plan that they would get so-called better health care but that would come at a slight higher cost, that the administration thought that people would say, okay, i get it. i'm paying a bit more but getting more in return from this. did he underestimate that wouldn't be satisfactory? >> i think th

chief marilyn tavenner. she is the first obama administration official to answer questions before congress over the flawed rollout of the healthcare.gov website. >>> government spying is also big on the hill today. in about two hours, the house intel committee holds a hearing to demand answers about the nsa's surveillance programs and it comes as outrage is building over the revelations the nsa spied on our country's allies, including german chancellor angeina merkel. dianne feinstein is calling for a total review. president obama said he wouldn't confirm what he called assumptions made in the press but the nsa is involved in a whole range of issues. >> what we've seen over the last several years is their capacities continue to develop and expand and that's why i'm initiating now a review to make sure that what they're able to do doesn't necessarily mean what they should be doing. >> joining me right now republican congressman peter king of new york. he's a member of the homeland security committee and chairman of the subcommittee on counterterrorism and intelligence. sir, it's gr

u.s. under the obama administration, is backing off a lot of the burden sharing, a lot of the heavy lifting that traditionally the u.s. has done in support of its allies over the past. >> because of the fallout, bought of the anger amongst the world leaders, julian, do you think someone's head should roll over this? >> well, we're going to see what the administration does. i think two things to remember. president obama himself raised a lot of the expectations about the differences with how he would conduct national security operations and those resonated both here and around the world. so it might be that in the end, he tries to blame someone. he himself now by -- with this report coming out that he ordered this to stop, it's something of an admission this shouldn't be business as usual. and the second thing is, this is a surveillance that's very different than people were used to in previous years because of e-mail and internet spying. so i think the president is going to do something. and i do think he's feeling that the political fallout is significant. >> christiane and julian,

is the floor. from 14 million which was the obama administration's own estimate. i want to go back to richard's point that people can get better plans. people get to choose what their best plan is. under this law, they no longer can. if it was a choice of keeping their own plan. without any shred of doubt for three straight years if they had that choice to keep that plan or get a better plan. why are they being forced off of their plan? >> isn't guy right? i think it benefits all americans who get health care. the 80% that is covered and it raises the floor for everybody. every single american getting health care. that is a good thing. not to mention the fact that those vindividuals will benefit from a tax credit. >> i guess it depends on who is paying for all of that. i want you to stick around for this question. why the president may delay the mandate after all. high dram ra in a utah courtroom. here is his own daughter's testifying against him. the latest from the martin mckneel murder trial. >>> have you tried to lol onto healthcare.gov. if you run into a problem you are not al

a tough month for the obama administration marked by the rocky rollout of the president's new health care program. a new survey shows while americans are aware of obama care, not that many have tried to sign up for coverage. let's get out to bertha coombs. is this a lack of interest or many people can't get online to sign up? >> it's hard to say but i would imagine the technology problems certainly are adding to this. the survey by the commonwealth fund finds that 17% of americans who are potentially eligible for coverage under the affordable care act, known as obama care, have visited the new health insurance exchanges to enroll in a plan, either by mail, phone orion line. the commonwealth fund is a private foundation that supports independent research on health care reform. the poll was conducted between october 9th and october 27th right in the thick of all of the problems that we've been seeing with the website. 60% of people say they are aware of the marketplaces. that's up from about 1/3 in a survey done earlier this year. one in five adults who visited an exchange say they enr
